. there are a significant number of americans who are under employed or unemployed. the romney people have to talk about how they are going to do things differently. i think that's part of the discussion tonight. >> but the basic argument that president obama's trying to make is that, no, things aren't perfect but they're getting better and there's polling that suggests that most americans or certainly a whole lot more americans -- >> today believe things are getting better. >> essentially believe that. >> quickly, chris. let me get you in. something else this administration will perhaps have to answer forgiven that this debate will address domestic and foreign policy is the situation in libya and the ongoing investigation from the congressional hearing we saw yesterday split along partisan line. i want to play what the president just said in a recent interview regarding the development in libya and his administration's handling of that situation. >> as information came in, information was put out. the information may not have always been right the first time. these are people i know, and if there's somethi
was a week ago. the economy getting better has caused romney to switch a little bit, talking not just about the economy but also about leadership and also trying to make himself a more acceptable alternative both personally and ideologically. >> steve, you look at these numbers, you've got to be thinking one thing if you're running a campaign, turnout, turnout, turnout. turnout will make a difference. >> turnout's going to make the difference, but one of the things that's going to help drive turnout is that momentum. and clearly 26 days out mitt romney's got momentum in this race. he was staring into the abyss a week ago. you look at all of the polls, and you look at the real clear politics average from last night where they average all these polls together, mitt romney ahead at that national average for the first time, getting very, very tight in these swing states. you know, i think that romney, you know, that tonight, you know, joe biden's got to do what dick cheney did eight years ago. he's got to stop the momentum. >> stop the bleeding. >> that the democrats had coming out of that bad
health insurance and now can't get it, well, sir, that was your decision. that's romney talking. obama stuck his neck out and rescued it. mr. romney said, let it take bankruptcy. this is the big drastic differences between these candidates and these debates should debate them. >> howard fineman, a political analyst and editorial director of the huffington post. he's here and rounding out our panel in kentucky is the pulitzer prize columnist eugene robinson. thank you for being with us. i want to start with chuck. your reporting, does it tell you that it's going to be a broad debate about philosophy and differences or a congressional markup sessions where they argue over details? >> i think if it's up to paul ryan it's going to be details, a little markups and in the weeds. if it's up to biden, it's going to be more of a lively, ideological split. one of the goals they would hope that joe biden accomplishes tonight is to make you feel better, essentially, chris, is to make the base of the party feel better. show some fight. get in there in some issues that they know, create a divide in
as an indication of weakness abroad while biden said romney's campaign talks first before they know what the facts are. reporting live in danville, i'm randall pinkston. >>> that cbs news poll found the overall impressions of both vice presidential candidate improved after the debate. 55% think biden is somebody they can relate to. 48% think ryan is. both candidates on how uncommitted voters feel about them as being effective president. we break down last night's face off. >> reporter: joe biden came out very aggressive in this debate and maintained that tone throughout. to republicans he was rude. they were using the word unhinged, complaining about his smirking. for democrats it's exactly what they wanted to see. a week ago president obama was very passive in his debate against mitt romney. it was frustrating for democrats. they wanted to see him take to it mitt romney. he didn't do that. joe biden took it to paul ryan. he interrupted. he dominated the debate. as for ryan he was fine. he was on message. he certainly didn't alienate anyone. this night was about joe biden and about changing the na
morning. she is filling in. the show is also in talks to get michelle obama on the air. ann romney is in the battleground states of virginia. she greeted cancer survivors and campaign volunteers yesterday in chester. peter in sarasota, florida, on our independent line. we are talking about whether political spouses affect your vote. caller: absolutely not. and i am an independent for u.s. senate in florida. and i'me-in candidate, single with a mensa iq, and i'm the owner of two companies. geraldine ferraro was the best candidate running back years ago. vote for pete. host: let's go to our next call in hindsville, alabama, on our democrat line. good morning. no, they don't affect my vote. they are very intelligent women, but i've already made up my mind. so the spouses don't have anything to do with that. host: do they give more perspective and to who the candidates are? radio station in washington, wtop, says -- do you feel the spouses can give more of a human side to the person? caller: they might try, but most people see what the. candidates the. it's kind of hard for them to cha
. seemed like the first debate between the president and governor romney was talking points, rehashed over and over again. >> i am going to send it back to sean. now that you've seen the candidates do you think either, no matter who wins this country will be better off do you think there is a clear choice now and you're nervous that the wrong candidate wins? >> i'm on the undecided side. i wasn't wooed over to either side by this debate. >> did anyone decide absolutely definitely who you're voting for without a doubt because of what you saw tonight? none of you? sean, that is important. we did this a week ago in denver. we had this huge shift of undecided to mitt romney. these people here took their opinions and they think joe biden did tell not critical of ryan but this biden did well but there is no fundamental shift like you saw a week ago. we're going to have to wait until next week's debate. >> sean: frank, appreciate it. we're going to check in with you throughout the evening. and in a few minutes we'll be joined by governor sara palin. y one of kentucky favorites, senator mitch mcco
they have simply failed to take personal responsibility for their lives. nice talk. listen to romney say out loud if you have a pre-existing medical condition and don't have insurance, well, that's your problem because that was your decision. that's how he talks. the same with the automobile industry. romney -- obama stuck his neck out to rescue it for all kinds of good reasons. his challenger said let it take bankruptcy. these are the drastic differences these debates should debate and they better do it. i'm joined by john heilemann, former rnc chair michael steele, my kind of republican. that will kill them. and politico's j. mar, jonathan mart martin. biden, first of all for the opposition, you're on defense, michael. >> always on defense. >> what does mr. ryan have to do to fend off the older, perhaps more seasoned veterans tonight? >> i think what he has to do is not get down in the weeds of the numbers but take those numbers and translate them into real people, real stories out there, very much as you saw romney do at the beginning of the delate last time. it really set the tone for wh
mitt romney who talked about 38.5 minutes. that wasn't necessarily an advantage for the president. because romney was widely considered to have won that debate. there was less of a gaffe during the vice presidential debate four years ago. joe biden spoke just under 40 minutes. sarah palin spoke for 40 minutes and 29 seconds. biden and palin stood at podiums. tonight, biden and ryan will be sitting together at a table and that will affect the way they interact, possibly also the amount of time they talk. jessica yellin is at the media center. jim acosta is in the spin room. jessica, set the scene for us. what's going on? >> hi, wolf. i'm actually in the media filing center. this is where the press from around the nation, actually from around the world. there are some people in from koer countries, have come to watch the debate and file their stories. you can see around here, here's our sister company, mark halperin and people from press from all over the place. fili and this is the gymnasium for centre college. usually, they play basketball and sports in here. but tonight, we're wa
want to talk to you about right in the middle of the crisis, governor romney and you are talking about this again tonight, talked about the weakness, talked about apology from the obama administration. was that really appropriate, right in the middle of the crisis? >> on that same day, the obama administration had the exact same position. let's recall that they disavowed their own statement that they put up earlier in the day in cairo. we had the same position. it's never too early to speak out for our values. we should have spoken out right away when the green revolution was up and starting when the mullahs in iran were attacking their people. we should not have called bashar assad a reformer when he was turning his russian-provided guns on his own people. we should always stand up for peace, for democracy, for individual rights. and we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts because what that does, when we equivocate on our values, when we show -- >> am i going to get anything to say here? >> it projects weakness, when we look weak, our adversaries are able to attack us
to vote for mitt romney and is taking a lot of flak for it. i'll tell you as a latino on cnn talking about being pro-romney, i get a lot of hate myself. stacey, stick to your guns, speak your mind. be true to yourself. people have died so we have the freedom to speak our mind and to vote our will. it was martin luther king jr.'s dream, the reason john lewis got beat up. be yourself. vote your conscience. and, folks, we are a nation of tolerance and we value diversity and different opinions. >> that's great advice. now plug your twitter so you can get more criticism. how can people reach you? >> @pete dom nic. >> i think biden is way cooler and going to get the youth vote. i think where biden differentiates himself tomorrow is showing how he's worked in a bipartisan way naming all the different times as a senator, a vp, that he's worked specifically with republicans to get things done. i think that's where obama differentiates himself also. i think romney and ryan are going too much partisanship. i think the one who wins the independent is a candidate. i'm really going to work with people a
's debate performance. i don't talk to conservatives at all that believe the mainstream media that romney won this debate by moving to the middle. we must be living on two totally different planets, because i don't hear that from conservatives at all. >> i believe keith believes you live on two different planets. michael, do you think it baloney? you have politico reporting several insiders felt that ann romney and tagg wanted mitt to be more personal and wanted him to perhaps soften the edges. despite what people like steve would want to hear as conservatives? let michael answer this. >> in the last 48 hours they've made efforts, the romney campaign has to humanize him. i reflect on the gop convention and the lost opportunity they had i thought the mormon testimonials were the most compelling aspect of the entire rnc. yet, it was lost because in primetime you didn't see it, only geeks like me tuned in and saw it. instead you saw clint eastwood and the empty chair. they recognize the errors of those ways and try to present him as more the massachusetts moderate to govern that state. >> in
boss, barack obama, did not, hammer the 47% comoant that mitt romney said and was talking about how mitt romney believes that 30% of the american people are takers -- that's my mom, that's my dad, he sadism the obama campaign has to be very happy with what biden did there. i mean, i was surprised that the president didn't do it in the last debate. i think biden made a lot of strong points, i just don't know where -- did women find him likeable. the other thing, i thought about it midway through, the obama campaign may not care. i mean, they may have sent him out there to really descrive -- drive through the points. nobody's going to vote for president for whether or not they like joe biden. i would have made him more likeable. but it may have just been about scoring points about pushing through, bringing up the 47% and really driving it. >> paul ryan had the last word saying i think the vice-president knows words don't always come out the right way on that's 47%. we are getting a preview on how they may handle that. back to you in a empty. >> wonk one thing's clear, the vice-preside
romney ponts out 47% of the people won't take responsibility. he is take -- talking about my mother and father and my neighbors in scranton, claymont. he is talking about the people that built this country. all they are looking for, market aall they are looking for is an even shot. when you give them the shot, they have done it. they have done it. whenever you level the playing field, they have been able to move. they want peace of mind. the president and i are not going to rest until that playing field is leveled. they in fact have a clear shot, and they have peace of mind, until they can turn to their kid and say with a degree of confidence, honey, it is going to be okay. it is going to be okay. that's what this is all about. >> martha: congressman ryan. >> i want to thank you, as well. danville, kentucky, centre college. i want to thank you, joe. it's been an honor to engage in this critical debate. we face a very big choice. what kind of country are we going to be? what kind of country are we going to give our kids? president obama, he had his chance. he made his choices. his ec
amount of pressure on paul ryan to do exactly that. if you talk to people in the romney camp they believe the debate win by mitt romney last week was absolutely critical. this came after a month or so of just horrible press for romney gaffes on the campaign trail, unforced errors and this debate give them a silver lining and a path to get past those things. if paul ryan majorly flubs this debate tonight, that is not going to be a good thing for them. that could affect the polls in a way that the campaign does not want. >> bill: what do you of this attempt to soften mitt romney to the kinder gentler side? he tried that on abortion and then the house from the tea partiers and conservatives were so extreme that two days later he had to come back and say no no no i am pro-life. >> the romney campaign will tell you they don't believe he changed his position. paul ryan said he isn't disappointed from what he saw from his running mate and they have a unified position on this issue. whether you are changing your position or not. that's a problem that hits at the
safe. >> i just want to talk to you about right in the middle of the crisis. governor romney, and you're talking about this again tonight, talked about the weakness, talked about apologies from the obama administration. was that really appropriate right in the middle of the crisis? >> on that same day, the obama administration had the exact same position. let's recall that they disavowed their own statement that they had put out earlier in the day in cairo. so we had the same position. but it's never too early to speak out for our values. we should have spoken out right away when the green revolution was up and starting, when iran was attacking their people. we should not call someone a reformer when he's turning his guns on his own people. we should always stand up for peace, democracy and individual rights and we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts, because what that does when we equivocate on our values, it makes us more weak. it projects weakness. when we look weak, our adversaries are much more willing to test us and less willing -- >> with all due respect that'
are talking about. >> last week mitt romney dominated in his first debate against president obama. in an interview with abc news, the president even admitted he had a bad night. >> your supporters have been saying, "this wasn't a bad night, he didn't show up.” is it possible you handed him the election that night? >> no. there's no doubt i can make a better case, which is why i am so looking for to tuesday. >> polls among likely voters showed romney did get a boost after the bait and he's taking advantage of it. >> we cannot afford another series of budget deficits of roughly $1 trillion per year. this is not just bad for the economy, it's bad for jobs. >> brandi hitt, abc news, ky. >> the vice-presidential debate tonight, log on to wjla.com/react from your compatible smartphone, browser or tablet to give us your reactions during that debate and we will share the results tonight at 11:00. >> south carolina posing new voter identification law, it cannot be implemented until next year. the law requires voters to show one of five types of photo identification to cast a ballot. it w
, right field and maybe we would view a better idea who mitt romney is. he will talk how we are going do get out of the black hole, what we will do the next four years and keep paul ryan to task and not talk about the grand ideas but, actually, telling us exactly what is going on. >> we thought we would get a lot of that, we get the specifics from congressman ryan, with his budget plan laid out but it doesn't seem like the republicans want him to talk about it. why? >> what you saw in the last debate, mitt romney had a chance to speak for 90 minutes about his policies and plans. the problem with the rallies when you cover them people are looking for the 30-second sound bite, not for a long, detailed expose. >>shepard: but bill clinton gave us specifics. >> no one has been more specific on budgets and entitlement reform than paul ryan. with regard to -- look, we are not going to negotiate with ourselves. the only people with the budget are the republicans with plans to save social security and medicare. >> that doesn't get us anyone. if paul ryan knows his numbers he is thought allowed to
, it does highlight the fact that mitt romney keeps talking a big game, you talked earlier about the foreign policy speech with no specifics, just big promises, and the same thing on the deficit and taxes. i'm going to get rid of the deficit, give you tax breaks, without talking about anything specific except, of course, big bird. >> yeah. and what -- it's important to note, you are a master of parody and comedy, the form as it were. sesame workshop has responded to big bird ad. >> official response. >> this qualifies as breaking news. >> i always knew snuff love gus was a republican but -- >> how dare you claim not to be liberals with all your brainwashing. i know how to count because of sesame street because they brainwash. >> let's not denigrate the importance of sesame street to early childhood education and the role it plans. to john's point, this is kind of -- we have serious issues at hand. >> exactly. >> and the chock is ticking. >> feel like i want to bring in mr. rogers and talk about my feel approximationp we should be talking about education and infrastructure, it is a tiny numbe
's described to me by the romney campaign, that's his nickname, mini mitt. you'll see him talk about the positions, not his positions before he was picked as the nominee, but mitt's position all night. that's the focus. you're not going to see a conversation paul ryan. >> phil, david says, conditions are told, this is veep candidates talk up your running mate, zing your opponent but avoid letting your career or policy ideas barack obama become the focus on the biggest life of the political life it's not about you. that said, when ryan was picked, those who didn't agree with pick said this guy has years of a congressional record, congressional approval rating is in the basement. there's a lot for joe biden to go at paul ryan on. >> and there's a lot for paul ryan to go at joe biden on. so there's four years of failed administration policy for ryan to litigate against president obama and joe biden. so i think if the question is, is there material for examination tonight in kentucky, absolutely there is. and do those issues that you raise, are they likely to come up? absolutely. but wha
of it. the fact is there. romney's been talking about conditions. the president and the vice president have said they're coming home 2014. >> why did vice president biden hammer paul ryan tonight on the issue of him requesting stimulus funds for his district? i get that he caught him in a little bit of hypocrisy, but he's not realistically criticizing paul ryan for having asked for funds that the democratic side maintains has worked well? >> here's paul ryan criticizing the stimulus package, how terrible it was, deepening the deficit. then he makes personal requests for his own congressional district. that's a matter of record. i don't think paul ryan looked very good at the end of the day. he believed that stimulus plan was going to create jobs. that's exactly what it did. >> senator, this is ed. i don't know if pressure is the right word or not, but joe biden went in to this debate tonight. he had to accomplish something that maybe wasn't done in last week's debate. you being a veteran of the senate, i know you've known joe for a long time. was there any doubt in your mind that he wa
hour, the woman behind the race for the white house, first lady michelle obama and ann romney talk to "good housekeeping" about their causes, their families. revealing some things you might not have known about the candidates. >>> when is the right time to start giving your kids an allowance? and how much should you be giving them? we're going to tell you the average for every age and the lessons you're teaching your kids about hopefully saving money. >> does allowance have some inflation over the years? >> i believe so. so will the tooth fairy. >> i know the tooth fairy has. >>> plus, a little bit of spice makes everything so nice. we're going to be making an easy spiced orange pound cake perfect for a halloween treat in just a little bit. >> but first, let's get a check on the weather. it's chilly outside. >> it's a tad brisk. let's see what we have for you today. the briskness will continue in the northeast and new england. risk of strong storms making their way along the missouri/arkansas border. we've got some beautiful weather in the pacific northwest, very wet through the so
in kentucky. brooke, i did talk to a senior romney adviser about their expectations for paul ryan later on this evening. as you will recall, mitt romney told wolf blitzer on qu"the situation room" he thought that paul ryan didn't debate before, perhaps last time was in high school. we went back and talked to the ryan folks about the that and he's debated several times during the course of his congressional career and talked to a senior romney adviser and talked about expectations and guidance, a quote here, it's a new experience for hi anghiccor much more experience in the senate in the two campaigns and then the 2008 general election campaign, the face-off with sarah palin. ryan ing to focus on s substance according to this adviser. you will recall at the last debate in denver everybody talking about zingers. where are the zing efforts? when will the zingers fly? by my count, mitt romney only fired off a couple of zingers during that presidential debate with president obama and so it's possible to see maybe the same tactic tonight for paul ryan. focusing on the substance and the issues
. what has been going on. mitt romney scored talking about the overall economy while even if you want to say it is better that does not mean it is good. what do you say? >> well, a challenger always has the luxury of saying, i can do it better, maybe they character maybe they can't -- maybe they can, maybe they can't, but if a president said this is the choice, no question that governor romney is an be abled, but he wants to take the middle class where i think most don't want to go. under president obama things are getting better than they were. if you want to follow more tax cuts and more benefits, vote for him, if you want to continue the course of president clinton built -- i mean president obama, vote for him. neil: quickly, a certain book that is out by your successor arnold schwarzenegger. he talks about a lot of affairs, i am wondering how he had time to be governor? >> you know, i'm not an expert on arnold's personal life. i like him as a person. i amy -- i have not read the book, i wish him well, i like maria and the the kids, i hope they find a way to move on. neil: much of
's in the mail. >> i get the romney argument and they're probably right for all of the reasons chuck talked about in terps of the demographic of the supporters in ohio but they have to be concerned about the numbers in the nbc poll early vote in ohio. nose numbers i thought was the most important number out of the data that came out today. >> chris cillizza, thank you so much. chuck todd, see you later, as well. >> beautiful day. you got the warm weather. four hours ago, it was chilly. >> i was watching -- >> i didn't have the nice sun. >> everything is timing. >> the glow. the glow of andrea mitchell. >> thank you, chuck todd. feeling the love. what are the expectations coming from the romney campaign for paul ryan's big night tonight? here what happens his senior adviser, dan senor told chuck todd this morning, when it was really cold. >> he has to make the case about the choice in the election, all right? things have been rough over the last four years and it's incumbent on president obama and vice president biden to explain what exactly has happened over the last four years 23 million america
